Hi Nuray,

Some interesting answers there.

We Muslims believe God without the imagination. We just feel it. I like this idea.

So do I but if you know God is there and you 'feel it' what use is the Quran? If everyone felt God the same way why label it with a religion like Islam or Christianity? You will know by your feelings if you are doing right or wrong. You are putting a lot of trust in a book written by man! Why not use your feelings instead as your moral barometer?

I believe the unknown things that Quran says they exists. I don´t need to see angels. Quran says two angels record what I have done along my life. One for recording and the other oen for backup. It is meaningful. Biographer of Muhammad (peace upon him) tells the details what he felt when he saw the angel. His cousin who were Christian told him what he saw was the angel that came to previous messengers.

The key word you used here was 'BELIEVE' I'm having a similar discussion with Saladin further down this post. That's all it boils down to......belief. So therefore, who is right? Christians, Hindus, Sikhs, Muslims, Bhuddists???? You only believe that you are right, and the next believes he is right....etc. If you are adamant you are right how will you prove it?

There can´t be more than one God. If not, all religions are fake. Islam corrects the fatal mistakes previous religions. I call it last version of God words.

This is where mulsims start to sound a bit arrogant.

1. You 'BELIEVE' that other religions are flawed.

Who made those religions flawed....God or man. I don't believe that God would make a flawed religion....why would he.

2. You assume that Islam is right. I think you'll find that many people feel that Islam is flawed. Only muslims feel that it isn't flawed.

3. Muslims assume Mohammad was the last messenger.......... Only until the next one comes along.....!!!

God can't be depend on others existance to exist. We Muslims believe that God is one.

There's that word again. ...BELIEVE and therefore, you don't know and could never know in this life.

I believe in what is wriiten in our book. This doesn´t make me a blind believer. Do I have right to create a religion, a God according to my wishful thinkings? Out of question. Humans and animals are part of the nature. One creature eat others. If we are aware of God why not animals? We area all creatures of the Creator Allah.

The 'BELIEVE' count is mounting so I do think it makes you a blind believer. That aside, shouldn't we all be vegetarian then. Are we aware of God, or do we all need something to BELIEVE to help us get through the day, your inner voice that keeps you going.

If you read history of mankind religions play important role at every century. It is not only reason to go to war but world faces deadly religious wars" One can see the conflict between Israel and Palestine as religous one but actually it is nothing but power conflict in Middle East.

Religion is used as an excuse for war, it's a good way of mobilising many people of similar beliefs.

"So there's only one God, so all religions must worship the same God, yes?" Exactly.

Hmmm.....so what's the beef between religions?

No one has power to decide where, when and how to die. This is the decision of God. Who can judge God?

But that's not what you originally said. You said originally. "We have freedom. We suffer from the decisions we made. God don't impose any rule over us. Allah says Quran is an advice for us. "

So I ask again why would God let a good person die in a fireball when a terrorist nutter flies a plane into the building he works in. Or a new born baby dying of sudden infant death syndrome. It had nothing to do with a decision they made....that is where your answer is flawed. The person at the controls of that plane made the decision for those people in those buildings. If God did then it's not a God worth following.

God is the owner of the judgement day. God is chosen Islam as the best path to heaven.It is God´s decision not ours. Only real Muslims can enter to heaven. I am not a perfect Muslim. Actually I am not a perfect person. But I am doing my best to live peacefully without hurting others. I hope that Allah forgive me. Being a Muslim is not a free ticket to heaven. Every Muslim is very well aware of this fact,

No...you BELIEVE that God has chosen Islam. Other people BELIEVE that God chose their religion. Please define a real muslim.

What happens to the othe 5 billion people who aren't muslims? Becasue it's very arrogant to say that only Mulsims will enter heaven.......don't you think? That's after you've just acknowledged that all religions worship the same God. Unless of course you are suggesting that every none muslim on the planet is a muslim really, but without knowing it.......??????

The book of God , which say so, is enough for me. Electronic version of Quran exists on the web. Then I can say yes. I read it on the internet.

The book says so....you BELIEVE end of story. Fine but it is your personal belief that shoudl not be forced on anyone who doesn't want it.

I will continue ..

I look forward to it.... great debate.

Submitting....
